St Stephen’s Tavern may have been saved, alas the Red Lion is still destined for effective closure.

Speaking to a Commons official, Guido was informed Parliament has very recently come into agreement with the proprietor of the politicos’ haunt, and they are set to take it over once the restoration and renewal plans get going. Whilst the official was being very diplomatically sheepish about telling Guido whether the pub would stay as a drinking venue for pass-holders, he did note any change away from a public house would have to go through Westminster council – the next fight starts here…
